The owner of 21 Webber street has put in a notification of demolition to the council. This is one of the last historical buildings in Valentine Place
/Row, after the demolition of 1860s warehouses by the same landowner last year and Travelodge across the road the year before. The same owner also currently already has a large construction going on next to the proposed demolition site at 102-7 Blackfriars Road
If you like heritage buildings and are a fan of preserving the area's local character please write to the council officer to object.
You may also live or be a business nearby in which case you may want to object on the grounds that a demolition site and construction site at the same time will be hellish and disruptive.
The building was recommended for listing in 2007, local residents are arguing that it should go to a planning committee and that at least a planning application for a new building needs to be put in before demolition is considered.
Planning officer is Fennel Mason
Details of planning application - 11/PA/0026
